This list of top skate punk groups let’s you see who skate punk fans think are the best bands in skate punk music. Originally a derivative of the West Coast hardcore punk scene, skate punk gets its name for its popularity within the skating community. Skate punk can be defined as melodic hardcore punk that when combined with the high energy of straightforward punk rock creates a sound that's distinctly associate with skateboarders. Emerging in the early 1980s in Southern California, Arizona, and Texas, skate punk has become one of the most popular forms of punk rock. In the late 1990s, the genre exploded into the mainstream and hasn't looked back since. Though some may associate skate punk and pop punk together, they're different genre and shouldn't be confused.
